I love getting acquainted with romance readers. Even though we don’t always get to meet in person, it’s still rewarding to build friendships through the power of social media. I believe each friend we make has something to share with us, lessons to teach us, experiences that can enrich us.
Today, I’m pleased to shine a “Reader Spotlight” on a beautiful lady from Nebraska, the Cornhusker State. Please join me in welcoming Eve Bell.
Eve describes herself as a hard-working woman, and with a husband, two sons, a daughter, an exchange daughter, their spouses, and seven grandchildren, she’s a busy lady, indeed. She also works as a town clerk and a grocery store clerk. She shares her home with two “furbabies” of her own — two dogs — and her granddaughter’s rabbit.
I asked Eve what romance genres she enjoyed reading and what she looked for in a good story. Here’s what she had to say:
Currently I’m reading western romance, mostly historical but some contemporary, too. What I look for in a romance novel is a good story line with well-written characters. I like stories that have an easy flow, ones that aren’t jumping around all over the place.
In addition to reading, Eve enjoys gardening, quilting, crocheting, and fishing. She has many fond memories of camping and fishing with her family while growing up. She likes to listen to country music and “golden oldies” from the 1950s.
She loves Christmas and considers her own family to be her most precious possession.
Just for fun, I threw out a few odds and ends of questions for Eve. Here are the questions and her answers.
What’s something you dislike? Mouthy, lazy, disrespectful people.
What’s your biggest fear? Snakes!
What’s your favorite food? Comfort food is my downfall, and a good steak!
What color is your bedroom? Off-white with blue accents.
I asked, too, what her favorite quote is. It’s from the Gospel of Matthew, Chapter 7, Verse 12.
I’m honored, Eve, to have you as my guest today. I look forward to chatting with you, maybe exchanging a craft pattern or two, and I do hope you’ll share a few pictures of your furbabies and that rabbit!
Thank you, Eve Bell!
